Area avoids damage from thunderstorms BY JEBB JOHNSTON

A deadly, spring-like storm system left the Corinth area and the Mid-South largely unscathed apart from some isolated wind damage on Friday. Some hail was reported in neighboring counties and a storm spotter looking north from Corinth reported a funnel cloud that was estimated to be in the Ramer area in McNairy

County, where Doppler radar indicated a tornadic storm moved across the southern part of the county. A funnel cloud was also reported 3 miles east of Shiloh. Corinth was largely spared, getting only some brief, heavy rainfall. The Corinth Weather Station ( recorded only .04 inches of rain. Street Commissioner Jim

Bynum said it barely rained at all at his residence in north Corinth, and his staff was not called out for any storm-related issues. “We dodged a bullet again,” he said. Expecting the worst, some schools and business closed early on Friday ahead of the afternoon storms. Please see STORMS | 2A

Wrecks result in minor injuries The Corinth Police Department worked three wrecks that all happened about 4 p.m. Saturday. Police Chief David Lancaster said it appeared only minor injuries resulted from each of the crashes. At U.S. Highway 72 and Galyean Road, an SUV rolled over after colliding with a car. Magnolia EMS took at least one person to the hospital. Another crash at U.S. 72 involved a motorcycle, and a two-vehicle crash also happened at a West Linden Street intersection.

Early warmth could threaten fruit crops

A wish come true 5-year-old gets dream trip to Disney World


A trek to get tires turned into a trip of a lifetime. Five-year-old Avelyn Logue and her older sister, Atalie, were told the family was going to Tupelo to buy new tires. There would be no new tread on this excursion. The purpose of the outing was a surprise for Avelyn. The youngest daughter of Trey and Mandy Logue was being selected for a trip to Disney World. The Logues just returned from the trip — made possible by the Make-A-Wish Foundation of the Mid-South and sponsored by Cops for Kids of Southaven — on Saturday. “It was definitely a blessing,” said Trey Logue. “They treated Avelyn like a princess.” Avelyn received the good news just over a week before she and her family left for Orlando, Fla. Make-A-Wish organizers first provided a limo ride around Tupelo before surprising the youngster with a party at Chuck E. Cheese.

With fruit trees in bloom as the result of persistently mild to warm winter weather, a late freeze could be disastrous for local crops. County Director Patrick Poindexter with the Mississippi State Extension Service said he hasn’t seen anything like this winter since he has been in Alcorn County. “This is really odd,” he said. “Normally, we’re not even considering seeing blooms this time of year.” The high temperature reached 81 degrees on Friday ahead of the storm system moving in, and high temperatures in the 60s and 70s have been common in recent weeks. Soil temperatures are rising along with the air temperatures. Poindexter is particularly concerned about the blooming fruit trees. “I’m afraid we could lose the majority of our fruit crop if we hit another cold snap,” he said. On the other hand, “If we maintain this type of weather into the spring and past the threat of the last frost, which is around April 15, it could mean a big boom for fruit production and vegetables,” he said. “But I seriously doubt we will get through to that point without some more freezing weather.” People looking to get an early start in

An Easter tradition

Music Club hosts floutist BY BOBBY J. SMITH

The Corinth Music Club held its February meeting at the home of Jennie Welch. The club meeting opened with a presentation by accomplished floutist Bobbi Campbell. He was accompanied by Paige Frame, also on the flute and pianist Michelle Reiselt. The program — titled “La Fluta Latina” — included selections from “Mexican Folk Dances for Flute Duet”; “Habanera” from “Carmen” by Georges Bizet; “Bossa Merengova” from “Sonata Latino” by Mike Mower; and “La Milonga” by Christopher Caliendo. “All of the pieces were played with flair, intensity and wonder-

ful execution,” said Corinth Music Club President Donna Janzen. The “Bossa Merengova” solo was played by Campbell, accompanied by Reiselt. “The mastery of this piece with its intricate rhythms and interpretation was excellent,” said Janzen. “Bravo to these great musicians.” In the business segment of the meeting, Peggy McCord asked for volunteers to play at local nursing homes and rehabilitation centers. This is a new project for the club and is working well, Janzen said. Volunteer pianists from the club go to the nursing homes during the lunch or dinner hour and provide “music to dine by,” she explained. A “hymn sing” is also

On this day in history 150 years ago Gen. Joseph E. Johnston, CSA was in charge of the defensive forces around Richmond, Va. He was vexed with his president because Jefferson Davis was irate with him over the low level of re-enlistments in Johnston’s army, and the high number of furloughs granted.

It’s OK to start early as long as the gardener is prepared to cover the plants if another cold spell strikes. But he recalled a late cold snap that brought night temperatures in the low 20s and high teens a few years back, and even covered plants froze. After a forecast low of 33 Saturday night, high temperatures are forecast to climb well into the 60s and near 70 as the week progresses.

According to the National Weather Service Memphis Forecast Office, the nearest reported wind damage was in Savannah, Tenn., where a few small trees were downed and some shingle damage occurred in the Cravens Area. Also in the Savannah area, quarter-size hail covered the ground in the Olive Hill

community. Golfball-sized hail, significant tree damage and broken windows were reported in Stantonville, Tenn., in northern McNairy County. Hail reports were numerous, including 1-inch diameter hail north of Marietta in Prentiss County, nickel- to half dollar-size hail near Selmer and some small hail in the Tishomingo area.

LOGUE: Local girl born with Angelman Syndrome CONTINUED FROM 1A

“Chuck E. Cheese was the ideal place for the sendoff party,” said Mandy Logue. “She loves anything that keeps her busy and in the middle of the action. She also loves it when her sister is with her.” After being greeted by Minnie Mouse and the Chuck E. Cheese staff, Avelyn was led to a party room filled with balloons, gifts and a cake. While in Orlando, the Logues spent two days at Disney along with a day at Sea World, Hollywood and Universal Studios. “She was beyond excited,” said Avelyn’s father. “She got to meet Barney for the first time and really liked Hollywood Studios.” Avelyn was born with Angelman Syndrome, a complex genetic disor-

der that primarily affects the nervous system. Children with the condition typically have a happy, excitable demeanor with frequent smiling, laughter, and hand-flapping movements. Hyperactivity, a short attention span, and a fascination with water are common. Most affected children also have difficulty sleeping and need less sleep than usual. The 5-year-old’s favorite thing to do at Disney World was take in the shows and the free ice cream. “Avelyn really got into the shows, especially ‘Beauty and the Beast,’” said her father. “We got to meet the cast of all the shows and were definitely spoiled rotten.” Trey has already talked about a possible return trip. “We hinted about going back again,” he said. “You can’t see it all in a week.”

Nancy Bell sparkles when she laughs She looks like somebody named Nancy Bell. Delicate features. Plump cheeks. Fresh skin. And just about the sweetest eyes I ever saw. When her daughter-inlaw mailed a request to family and friends to write down their memories of my Aunt Nancy (which they’ll present to Nancy on her birthday in a book), the word that leapt to my mind is kindness. She could have made a fortune with that soft and singsong voice on some TV show — perhaps as Mr. Rogers’ wife. Of course, she was in charge of her own show — raising four rowdy boys, who wrestled and argued and ran around those Tennessee woods the way a pack of boys will do. I’ve never heard her raise her voice. We’ve often shaken our heads in wonder at her patience. I still do, remembering her loading up the car with Marcus and Miles and Travis and Tyler, buckling them into their carseats and seatbelts, one by one. Now, I’ve seen her exasperated. She’d firm her lips

and raise her eyes to the heavens upon occasion (and there must have been Ryland plenty of Bruhwiler o c c a s i o n s , what with Columnist all those kids and critters, not to mention my irascible uncle). I don’t mean to make her sound as bland as a greeting card or as syrupy sweet as some bread pudding. Far from it. My mother used to say she never saw a bride as victorious as Nancy Bell striding up the aisle. And you don’t have to know that she’s an RN to figure out how bright she is. Just play her in a round or two of cards as she quietly beats the socks off everybody else, a gleeful glint in those blue eyes. You don’t raise four boys without needing to raise your voice — unless you have backbone. Principles. And a goodsized dollop of humor. She sparkles when she laughs.

I’ll always associate her with Thanksgiving holidays. Year after year Nancy and Mark opened their home up to the Denton clan, most of us out-of-towners sleeping at their house built way out in the woods on the side of a steep hill. And almost invariably something would go wrong with the plumbing. So we’d be taking turns to use one bathroom only. Or allowed five-minute showers. Or shuttling back and forth to Aunt Leslie’s place in town. I have such happy memories of that long row of tables lined up for the feast, all the faces beaming above the heaping plates. Even better than the basted bird and Bunny’s gravy and at least a dozen pies was that long walk we’d take beforehand through the woods, all of us, a family tradition. But if I could relive those days, I’d choose the breakfasts, folks taking turns around the table in that warm and crowded kitchen, one pot of coffee after another brewing as Nancy popped cinnamon buns into the oven, the ones with the

orange-flavored icing. (And Uncle Mark a’growling because we kept dirtying all those spoons!, adding cream and sugar and giving our coffee cups a stir -when, as any fool ought to know, all you have to do is pour your cream and sugar into the cup before you add the coffee and it’ll stir itself!) The last year that Gramma Peg — who was Mark’s mother, not Nancy’s own — joined us for the holidays, Peg could no longer speak or walk. I poked my head into her room one morning to ask Nance a question — and will carry with me to my grave the tenderness with which she treated Gramma as she bathed and dressed her. Would that we all could be treated with such gentle hands when we are old and ill. And with such a depth of kindness. Ryland Bruhwiler lives on a farm in McNairy County, Tenn.

Town prepares for Great Depression in 1931 (This information was first published in 1978 in “A Place Called Belmont” by Jerry Martin. It was later transcribed on Feb. 13, 2012 for the Tishomingo County Historical & Genealogical Society by Helah Wilson and Cindy W. Nelson from The Belmont and Tishomingo Journal, Belmont, March 12, 2008.) In 1931, a new town administration took office. M. P. “Trim” Haynes was mayor. Aldermen were E. Clay Wright, B. N. Patterson, Charles H. Yarber, J. C. “Jess” Ward, and W. W. “Billy” Shook. Charlie S. Thorn was Marshal and Tax Collector. W. W. Shook remained town clerk. The aldermen voted that all street lights were to be discontinued except for three lights on Main Street with the understanding that objections at the next meeting would result in all street lights being discontinued. A committee was named to investigate lights and power rates. Obviously, the town officials were girding for the effects of the depression. There was reason for concern as corn dropped to 12 1/2 cents per bushel. Cotton was to drop to three cents per pound or no price at all. Night watchmen in 1931 were T. E. James, A. F. Ward, and C. T. Pharr. In December, the Mississippi Power Company was authorized to disconnect park lights. The tax collector was to collect taxes in the upstairs of the courthouse, and V. B. Smith was asked

to help him. At the Fifth District Special Consolidated School, Herbert L. RaNae Shook was Vaughn elected superintenHistorically Speaking dent for the 1931-1932 term. J. C. Ward became president of the Board of Trustees. Wiley Richardson was elected principal and coach. He was granted permission to buy shoes from game receipts with the board responsible for the balance. Coach Richardson was authorized to put a concrete floor and a ceiling in the dressing room with the school board bearing the expense. In addition, Mildred McLane was elected music and expression teacher and granted permission to buy a piano. The piano was to be paid with public entertainment with the board responsible for the balance. With time and little or no money, many people went to Haynes Lake west of Three Hollows off of Moore’s Mill Road for recreation and relaxation. M. P. Haynes built the lake of about 10 acres several years earlier with mules and slip scrapes furnishing the force. In fact, Haynes Lake had opened in May 1928, with a festive opening day consisting of free swimming, boxing, Charleston contests, trapshooting, and a big barbecue supper.

Down through the years, many came to fish, swim, or just relax. At times, the crowds were rather large with many people from nearby Itawamba County. The dam to the lake broke decades later; but in the depression, Haynes Lake off Moore’s Mill Road was a source of some relaxation in a troubled time. For the 1932-36 term, W. R. Creel of Golden was Tishomingo County State Representative, J. D. Mann was Fifth District Supervisor. The Fifth District Justices of the Peace were J. T. Vaughn and W. A. “Tack” Smith. J. U. Clark was constable. Back in 1932, the Belmont town board passed a motion to reduce the electrical energy rates of Mississippi Power Company, successor of Inland Utilities Company, by one-third to go in force on March 17, 1932. On April 15, 1932, the respected Belmont builder, W. W. Shook, tendered his resignation as alderman and town clerk. Another respected Belmontian, C. W. “Carroll” Yarber, replaced him as town clerk and alderman. Night watchmen at that time were Dave Haynes and his successor, Price Ward. The salary had dropped from $25 per month to $10 per month. The town reconsidered the matter that cut the light rates and decided upon the time that the new rates would be operative. In September, the mayor and board declared that the dance hall being operated

in a building on the east side of town had become a nuisance and declared in closed. To face the financial problems of the depression life in 1932, Mississippi had a new governor, Martin S. “Mike” Conner. Governor Conner, inaugurated in 1932, instantly tried to combat the politics and problems of depressionridden Mississippi, which was more than 12 million dollars in the red. He took a business approach to his unenviable task as governor and gained the passage of a sales tax to get the state needed money to salvage its credit. Governor Conner urged the people to depend on work and their own resourcefulness to combat the problems of the time. He also lessened the damaging effects of politics in state agencies and tried to improve the public image of Mississippi. Still, his business approach and sales tax enactment in 1932 aroused much bitterness and resentment among businessmen and financially burdened consumers. Eventually, the Conner administration proved its economic value because the state treasury was about $3,243,661 when Governor Conner left office in 1936.

Corinth, Miss.

Are we voting for Utopia or liberty? President Reagan warned, “Freedom is no more than one generation away from extinction.” This year voters will decide whether they want freedom or utopia (an imaginary state where government guarantees everyone will live equally prosperous lives). GOP candidates have allowed their messages of freedom from the tyranny of big government to become coopted by the media who have Danny hammered them with quesGardner tions on social issues while literally ignoring issues about Columnist jobs and the economy. At the latest GOP presidential debate, CNN’s John King did not ask a single question about energy policy or skyrocketing gas prices. Instead he asked a steady stream of social questions, many of which received groans from the partisan audience who wanted to hear red meat comments about big government, jobs and our anemic economy. The mainstream media continue to parrot the progressive White House lines that the economy is moving in the right direction, that things are getting better, and that given four more years of more than $1.3 trillion in deficit spending we’ll be better off than ever before. Progressives promise to save us through bigger more comprehensive government. This is precisely what our Founding Fathers fought against . . . literally. Bigger more intrusive government is stifling business and threatening to end liberty in America just like it did when leaders felt compelled to revolt against the tyranny of King George. Our nation was founded on principles and values of individual freedom and unalienable rights given by God. “We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.” Representatives of the 13 original states drafted the Constitution in such a way as to limit the power of a centralized federal government and to give much more power to states and to individuals. In fact, some states considered the Constitution so weak regarding protection of individual liberties, they balked at ratifying the document until the Bill of Rights was added. Progressives have turned governance in America upside down with an all-powerful federal government intruding on every aspect of life and property, including financial penalties for marrying and for dying. Consider the results of big government on steroids we’ve witnessed under the Obama administration and the complicit Democratic Congress. They promised unemployment would not exceed 8-percent if we passed a nearly $1 trillion “stimulus” bill. What happened? Unemployment not only raced past the 8-percent mark, but skyrocketed to 10-percent over the next ten months! We’re still significantly over the 8-percent bar Mr. Obama set three years ago. Welcome to the new normal. Mr. Obama has grown the federal government with borrowed money to the extent we’re $5 trillion more in debt today than we were when he entered office. The interest on that debt is consuming more and more of our budget leaving less and less for necessary programs. The non-partisan Congressional Budget Office has said Medicare, Medicaid, and Social Security are not sustainable as they operate today. Have the progressives proposed any way to save these programs? No. They want to leave them alone which means someone in Washington down the road will have to ration money to recipients. Do you believe one-size-fits-all big government in Washington can make us better off? Or, do you believe the government has gotten too big and is weighing us down with way too much debt and deficit spending? In other words, do you believe in the fantasy of utopia, or do you believe in the founding principals of liberty in the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution?

A verse to share Let us consider how to provoke one another to love and good deeds. — Hebrews 10:24 (NRSV)

Prayer for today Thank you, God, for saving us. We pray in gratitude, saying, “Our Father in heaven, hallowed be your name, your kingdom come, your will be done on earth as it is in heaven. Give us today our daily bread. Forgive us our debts, as we also have forgiven our debtors. And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from the evil one.” Amen.

Will virtual charters make the cut? STARKVILLE — While the empowerment and expansion of the charter school concept in Mississippi seems a foregone political conclusion in the Mississippi Legislature, the central questions that remain are whether the House will try to limit charter schools in school districts rated “successful” and whether the House will seek to include “virtual” charter schools in the bill they send to conference with the Senate version. The question of “virtual” charter schools – private educational institutions offering classes entirely online – have been a lightning rod during the current charter school debate. Leading the charge against virtual charter schools has been state Superintendent Tom Burnham and Parents’ Campaign executive director Nancy Loome – both of whom say virtual charters schools have poor performance records. Drawing particular fire from Loome and others has been K12 Inc. K12 is a publicly-held Herndon, Va., firm that is the largest U.S. operator of taxpayer-funded online schools and that is part-owned by billionaire

Michael Milken. Milken is best known of late as a philanthropist and financier of cutting-edge cancer and epilepsy research. But in 1990, Milken -- at that time known by the pejorative title “junk bond king” pleaded guilty to six Sid Salter felony counts Columnist of securities fraud and served a oneyear-and-10-month federal prison sentence. Milken’s connection to K12 Inc. has been roundly flogged during the ongoing charter school debate in this state. So, too, has been highlighted the success of the charter KIPP School in West Helena, Ark., which has been cited by charter school advocates in both the Democratic and Republican parties in Mississippi as a model for what the charter school concept could accomplish in Mississippi compared to existing performance failures in the vast majority Clarksdale and Coahoma County public schools. The K12 Inc. virtual charter school corporation has

hired a powerful Mississippi lobbying group, Capitol Resources, and in doing so engaged Henry Barbour, the savvy nephew of former Gov. Haley Barbour, in trying to include virtual charter schools in Mississippi’s expansion of the charter school concept. Arkansas not only has the bricks-and-mortar KIPP School, but also is in the charter school business as well. Through the Arkansas Virtual Academy, students participate in an online public school, chartered by the Arkansas Department of Education, serving students across the state in grades K-8. ARVA’s content and online services are provided by K12, Inc. A recent University of Arkansas study is touted by ARVA supporters that they say proves that “students at online charter school outperformed comparison peers in math and literacy.” But last year, the Arkansas Board of Education denied a request to expand ARVA by tripling the state’s enrollment cap from 500 to 1,500. One state board member openly challenged ARVA’s administrative costs, which was 15 percent of the total

budget compared to an average 5 percent in traditional bricks-and-mortar public schools. Other board members -- which joined together to vote 7-1 against expanding ARVA – complained that the virtual charter school’s standardized test scores were near the state average in many areas and below the state average in others. Board member Brenda Gullett of Fayetteville, Ark., told the Arkansas News Bureau: “In my mind, we don’t grant a charter so that you can be close to the state average.” The charter school concept has sufficient political momentum to become a real and significant part of the state’s education landscape. For many failing school districts, the concept represents hope and an effort to break the status quo. But concerns over the accountability and performance factors for virtual charter schools are wellfounded and the state Senate was wise to leave that concept out of their version of charter school legislation.

In Vietnam, the 1968 Tet Offensive by communist troops against South Vietnamese and American forces and their allies is regarded as the turning point in that conflict. Though communist forces suffered heavy losses, which would normally define defeat, CBS News anchor Walter Cronkite and others in the U.S. media, portrayed the operation as an allied loss, thus encouraging not only the anti-war movement, but North Vietnamese and Viet Cong troops who believed all they had to do was hang on until America grew tired of the war and quit. Since the Obama administration appears to care more about not offending those Afghans who want to kill Americans and since it has announced the deadline for the withdrawal of surgelevel troops in Afghanistan for later this year, despite the fact that they have stymied the efforts of Taliban insurgents to destabilize the country, maybe it’s time to pull all U.S. forces out and leave our puppet, Hamid Karzai, to his fate.

The latest affront comes courtesy of the burning of Korans by U.S. soldiers on a military base near Kabul. Military officials maintain the Cal Korans were Thomas being used by imprisColumnist oned jihadists to pass messages to other prisoners and were confiscated and destroyed. A spokesman for the NATO-led force said the troops, “...should have known to check with cultural advisers to determine how to dispose of religious material properly.” For this unintended action, however, Karzai wants the soldiers to be put on trial and has asked NATO commanders to allow it. If they do, they will have disgraced their uniform. Does writing in a Koran desecrate it? One might expect it would, but the outrage is over the burning, not the writing. More than 1,700 Americans have died in and around Afghanistan and more than 14,000

have been wounded since the United States invaded shortly after September 11, 2011. And this is the thanks we get? How sharper than a serpent’s tooth it is to have a thankless puppet. When do jihadists apologize for mass murder or religious persecution? Two years ago in Rasht, Iran, Youcef Nadarkhani, a Christian pastor who converted from Islam, was arrested on charges of apostasy. He has been sentenced to hang for his religious conversion. Anyone hear any apologies from “moderate” Muslims about that, much less attempts to shame the ayatollahs, or label them apostates? The New York Times reported recently that President Obama’s three-page apology letter to President Karzai contained these sentences: “I wish to express my deep regret for the reported incident. I extend to you and the Afghan people my sincere apologies.” This will only serve as further evidence to our enemies in Afghanistan of America’s weakness and lack of resolve in what is likely to be a very long and global war. American impatience, fa-

tigue and a desire not to offend, does not bode well for an American victory or for Afghan liberation. No one worried about offending our enemies during World War II. That’s why the forces for good won. Can Afghanistan be stabilized so as not to pose a threat to America and American interests? Probably not, if the surge forces pull out on schedule and America continues to fight under restrictive and selfimposed rules of war while the enemy does not. So what’s the point? Are we to stay only until after the election so President Obama won’t be asked, “Who lost Afghanistan?” If our troops are coming out anyway and if the administration can’t define victory, or commit the resources necessary to achieve it, waiting longer only ensures more casualties. As with Vietnam, that is a waste of blood and treasure. Ask the ghosts of the more than 58,000 fallen whose names appear on the Vietnam Veterans Memorial Wall in Washington, or the ghosts of the politicians who are responsible for putting them in their graves.

State Childhood star remains a class act BY BILLY WATKINS The Clarion-Ledger

HATTIESBURG — Before his 12th birthday, Eddie Hodges was part of 405 productions of The Music Man in New York between December 1957 and November 1958. He helped earn the play five Tony Awards, Broadway’s highest honor. “My mom also told me it won some other award ... something none of us had ever heard of,” he said. That unknown honor was a Grammy for Best Original Cast Album — the first year of the award’s existence. Hodges, 64, watched the recent 54th annual Grammy Awards ceremony from his Hattiesburg home with a claim to fame no one can ever duplicate — Mississippi’s first Grammy winner. “It’s strange, but I didn’t even know I was the state’s first recipient until they started having the Mississippi Grammy celebration a few years ago,” said Hodges, who manages a mental health care clinic in Collins. “And I still don’t have an actual Grammy trophy.” He chuckles. “I want one of those with the famous (Victrola) on it. But I guess too much time has passed now.” Hodges is happy living a simple life in his hometown with his two children — twins Sean and Shannon — and six grandchildren nearby, which is an accomplishment in itself. He never fell into the my-life-is-over doldrums

that befall many child actors once they enter adulthood. And Hodges had a double-dose of fame. Not only was he a celebrated actor, but he also became a teen idol singer in the early 1960s with hits such as “I’m Gonna Knock On Your Door” and “Made to Love (Girls, Girls, Girls).” In 1964, he was part of a private performance in Puerto Rico with a 23-year-old singer/songwriter who had become one of Hodges’ favorites — Bob Dylan. “Everybody else was wearing tuxedos, but here comes Dylan with jeans and boots and a dirty, old jacket,” Hodges recalls. “I said ‘Mr. Dylan, I want to write songs just like you. What advice can you give me?’ I thought he might tell me about a book to read or something like that. Instead, he said ‘Well, man ... just write what you feel.’ And then he kind of floated away.” Hodges and his family — parents John and Ruby and older sister Diane — traveled from Hattiesburg to New York in 1952 for a two-week vacation. “They had always been intrigued with New York,” he said, “and at the end of the two weeks they decided we were going to move there.” His dad got a job as night manager of the King Edward Hotel; his mom worked at Macy’s. And John had a vision for his son. “He took me around town every day for auditions, even though I’d

never taken a single acting lesson,” he said. Hodges earned a onetime minor role on “The Web,” a detective show, and that led to appearances in Campbell soup commercials, a car commercial on “The Red Skelton Show” and two appearances on “The Honeymooners.” “I got The Honeymooners part because my dad knew (co-star) Art Carney from the hotel,” Hodges said. Then he hit a dry spell, though he constantly auditioned. His life changed in 1957 while standing on a corner near Times Square with his grandfather. “A woman approached me and said ‘Where did you get that red hair?’ I told her ‘It came with my head.’ My uncle told me to always say that. She said ‘Do you like music?’ and I told her I did. She gave me a card, and we called the number the next day.” It was the office of the popular game show “Name That Tune.” Hodges auditioned and earned a spot on the Oct. 4, 1957, episode. His partner on the show was Marine test pilot John Glenn. Together, they earned $25,000. A YouTube clip shows host George DeWitt asking Glenn about the Soviet satellite Sputnik, launched three days earlier and the first man-made object to orbit the earth. Glenn, who in 1962 became the first American to circle the Earth in space, said Sputnik could lead to humans traveling to the

moon one day “during Eddie’s lifetime.” DeWitt asked Hodges: “Eddie, would you like to take a trip to the moon one day.” Hodges smiled and answered: “No sir, I like it fine right here.” The audience roared with laughter. Watching on TV that night were the producer and director of “The Music Man.” They had auditioned hundreds of children for the part of Winthrop without success. “They called the office of ‘What’s My Line?’ the next day and said they wanted to audition me,” he said. “I got the job on the spot.” In the audience during one of his final “Music Man” performances were singer/actor Frank Sinatra and film director Frank Capra. Hodges knew of Sinatra “because I was a music fiend, and I loved his songs.” They offered him a part in the 1959 movie “A Hole In the Head,” in which Hodges sang “High Hopes” with Sinatra. It earned an Academy Award. He followed that in 1960 by playing the lead role in “The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn;” a musical “The Secret Life of Eddie Hodges,” narrated by Jackie Gleason; and “Advise and Consent.” He also earned TV guest appearances on “The Lucy Show,” ‘‘The Dick Van Dyke Show” and “Gunsmoke.”

Lawmakers hope students will lead school prayers BY JEFF AMY Associated Press

JACKSON — State lawmakers hope that if they create a “limited public forum” for Mississippi public school students, they will make it legally acceptable for prayer before fellow students and other audiences. A bill proposing giving students a chance to speak every school day as well as before every athletic competition, graduation or school event was approved Friday by the House Education Committee. “We all need to pray,” said Rep. Kevin McGee, R-Brandon. “Hopefully, if this bill passes, we will be able to do that in many different places.” A few committee members were opposed though, fearing that the measure is an invitation to disputes and lawsuits. “I just think you’re opening up a Pandora’s box,” said Rep. Nick Bain, D-Corinth. After the meeting, Sam Bounds, executive director of the Mississippi Association of School Superintendents, said that his association was also concerned that the proposal could force school districts to permit offensive viewpoints. The bill is styled as an anti-discrimination measure, called the “Religious Viewpoints Antidiscrimination Act” or the “Schoolchildren’s Religious Liberties Act.” Besides trying to clear the way for students to pray legally, it bans teachers

from penalizing or rewarding students for expressing religious views in schoolwork. It also requires that students be allowed to organize prayer groups and religious clubs and that outside religious groups be allowed to use school facilities in the same way as nonreligious groups. Last fall, a number of Mississippi school districts stopped allowing prayers before football games after they received a letter from the Freedom From Religion Foundation, a Wisconsin-based group of atheists and agnostics. That letter noted that the U.S. Supreme Court had outlawed student-led prayer before football games in a 2000 case that originated in Texas. Some Mississippi districts, including DeSoto County, the state’s largest, had been allowing pregame prayer even though they had policies banning it. Many condemned the ruling, and in places, a moment of silence was filled with audience-led prayer organized in advance.

Cyprus drops charges against 98-year-old Associated Press

NICOSIA, Cyprus â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Cyprusâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; attorney general has dropped gambling charges against about 40 elderly women, including a 98-year-old, whose weekly poker-and-bridge party had been raided by police. The women, mostly in


their 70s, had became a local cause celebre after receiving a court summons this week. Interviews with 98-year-old Eftychia Yiasemidou appeared in several media outlets. An assistant for Attorney General Petros


Clerides said Friday the official had been unaware of the case and only found out about it through media reports. Gambling in Cyprus is punishable by up to six months in jail or a (euro) 750 ($1,000) fine.

Obama: Fuel-efficient cars offer answer to gas prices BY JIM KUHNHENN Associated Press

WASHINGTON â&#x20AC;&#x201D; President Barack Obama says higher auto mileage standards set under his administration and better cars built by a resurgent U.S. auto industry will save money at the gas pump over the long term, a counterpoint to Republican criticism of his energy policy. In his weekly radio and online address Saturday, Obama said Detroit automakers are on track to build cars that average nearly 55 miles per gallon by 2025, doubling current mileage standards. â&#x20AC;&#x153;That means folks will be able to fill up every two weeks instead of every week, saving the typical family more than $8,000 at the pump over time,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a big deal, especially as families are yet again feeling the pinch from rising gas prices.â&#x20AC;? During the past several weeks, Obama has been eager to appear aggressive in the face of rising gasoline prices even as he reminds audiences that there is no simple, im-

mediate solution that will reverse the current spike in prices. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s happening in Detroit will make a difference. But it wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t solve everything,â&#x20AC;? Obama said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s no silver bullet for avoiding spikes in gas prices every year.â&#x20AC;? By drawing attention to the auto industry, Obama looked to highlight both his efforts to improve fuel efficiency as well as his role in helping rescue General Motors and Chrysler. He also reiterated his call to end oil and gas company tax breaks and government subsidies that average about $4 billion a year. Rising oil prices have become a concern at the White House, where Obama aides worry they could hurt an economic recovery that has been improving and also harm the presidentâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s re-election prospects. Oil prices typical rise in the spring, but they have spiked to heights unseen at this this time of year, hastened by increased tensions over Iranâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s nuclear program. Gasoline pric-

es reached $3.74 a gallon on Friday, a record at this point in the calendar but still shy of the high point of $4.11 hit in July 2008. In Saturdayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Republican address, Rep. Doc Hastings of Washington said a meeting this week among Obama and House and Senate leaders from both parties â&#x20AC;&#x153;provided a glimmer of new hope that the president and the Democratic-controlled Senate may finally act on some bipartisan energy billsâ&#x20AC;? already passed by the Republican-controlled House. Still, Hastings, the chairman of the House Natural Resources Committee, faulted Obama for not doing more to increase domestic oil and gas production, for opposing drilling on the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge, for blocking a Canada-toTexas oil pipeline and for imposing regulations on energy producers. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The president, who campaigned on a promise to address rising gas prices, now talks as if theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re largely beyond his control,â&#x20AC;? Hastings said.

Justice Department loses court rulings BY NEDRA PICKLER Associated Press

WASHINGTON â&#x20AC;&#x201D; The Justice Department has lost three significant court rulings over records sought by the public under the Freedom of Information Act, including a rare order to release a classified document. The rulings have been issued recently by judges in federal district court in Washington. Two of the judges have ruled that protecting the privacy of congressmen is not enough reason to withhold records about

corruption investigations of the lawmakers. The third ruling, from U.S. District Judge Richard Roberts, said the U.S. Trade Representative must turn over a position paper prepared during negotiations for a Free Trade Agreement of the Americas, conducted in the 1990s and 2000s, which never resulted in a deal. The Justice Department had argued that disclosure of the document would damage foreign relations since it agreed with other nations that

documents produced during the negotiations would not be publicly released. But Roberts on Wednesday sided with the Center for International Environmental Law in finding there were no plausible or logical explanations to justify the secrecy. He cited the member nationsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; agreement that all documents produced during negotiations would be publicly available at the end of next year unless a country objects to the release of one of its own documents.

and BP has already paid out billions in cleanup costs and to compensate victims. BP said it expects the money for Friday’s settlement to come from the $20 billion compensation fund that it previously set up and that Feinberg has been administering. According to the Deepwater Horizon Oil Spill Trust, current total trust assets are approximately $9.5 billion. The spill exposed oil industry failings and forced BP chief executive Tony Hayward to step down after the company’s repeated gaffes, including his infamous statement at the height of the crisis: “I’d like my life back.” He was jettisoned off to work for a BP affiliate in Russia and has since left that company. BP’s environmentally-friendly image was tarnished, and independent gas station owners who fly the BP flag lost business from customers who were upset over the spill. The disaster also created a new lexicon in American vocabulary as crews used innovative attempts to plug the spewing well, such as the top kill and the junk shot in which they tried to plug the well with pieces of rubber. As people all over the world watched a live spill camera on the Internet and television, the Obama administration dealt with a political headache, in part because the government grossly underestimated how much crude was spilling into the Gulf.

posed claims program.” The trustees that oversee the fund’s assets have not yet weighed in publicly. The spill soiled sensitive tidal estuaries and beaches, killed wildlife and closed vast areas of the Gulf to commercial fishing. The suits consolidated in federal court in New Orleans were filed by fishermen who lost work, cleanup workers who got sick and others who claimed harm from the oil giant’s April 20, 2010 Gulf disaster. The momentous settlement will have no cap to compensate the plaintiffs, though BP PLC estimated it would have to pay out about $7.8 billion, making it one of the largest class-action settlements ever. After the Exxon Valdez disaster in 1989, the company ultimately settled with the U.S. government for $1 billion, which would be about $1.8 billion today. BP still has to resolve claims by the U.S. government, Gulf states and its partners on the doomed Deepwater Horizon rig, which exploded and sank 50 miles off Louisiana after a BP oil well a mile below the ocean’s surface blew out. Eleven rig workers were killed and, according to the government, more than 200 million gallons of oil spewed before the well was capped nearly three months later. The remaining claims from the government could add billions more to BP’s tab,

NEW ORLEANS — BP’s settlement of lawsuits filed by more than 100,000 victims of the worst offshore oil spill in U.S. history goes a long way toward resolving pending claims. But the question remains, will Americans who live along the Gulf of Mexico go for it? BP expects to pay out $7.8 billion and anticipates that a separate claims fund run by Ken Feinberg will cease at some point. New vehicles will be set up and supervised by the court to pay claims as part of Friday’s settlement. People waiting for money from Feinberg’s Gulf Coast Claims Facility can take what the settlement vehicles offer them or opt out and make a claim directly to a BP-run entity. If they don’t like what they get from that entity, they can sue. And many just might. The U.S. Justice Department said Friday’s settlement is not the end of the road. “The United States will continue to work closely with all five Gulf states to ensure that any resolution of the federal law enforcement and damage claims, including natural resources damages, arising out of this unprecedented environmental disaster is just, fair and restores the Gulf for the benefit of the people of the Gulf states,” the agency said in a statement. BP’s payout estimate includes what the company internally predicts legal fees for the numerous plaintiffs lawyers in the case will be, though the issue has not yet been discussed between the two sides, according to a person with direct knowledge of the settle-

ment terms who spoke on condition of anonymity because those details are confidential. That could be a dealbreaker for people who have spent nearly two years trying to get money directly from BP or through the Feinberg-run fund that took over the claims process in August 2010, four months after the Deepwater Horizon disaster. Many have been pursuing their claims without a lawyer and therefore have not had to pay such fees. They also could balk at the idea of potentially having to start their entire claims process over again, or at least the prospect of delaying the compensation they desperately need. And the government could weigh in. That’s because the $20 billion fund run by Feinberg was set up not only to pay claims by individuals and businesses, but also environmental damages and state and local response costs. It is not clear if such damages have already been covered. One positive development: Pending offers before the GCCF will be honored, according to the person with knowledge of the settlement terms. Feinberg said the announcement of the settlement was good news and he was happy with the work of the fund he ran. “I point with significant pride and satisfaction to the achievements of the Gulf Coast Claims Facility: reviewing over one million claims submitted by 573,000 claimants and paying some $6.1 billion to approximately 225,000 individuals and businesses in just over 18 months,” he said in a statement Saturday. “I believe the GCCF has successfully fulfilled its mandate, and urge an orderly transition to the new pro-

Mississippi beats Tide for 3rd straight win Associated Press

OXFORD, Miss. — As far as Mississippi coach Andy Kennedy is concerned, the Southeastern Conference tournament could not come at a better time. Ole Miss extended its winning streak to three games Saturday with a 60-51 win over Alabama, snapping a four-game winning streak by the Crimson Tide. The Rebels (18-12, 8-8) are the No. 7 seed in the tournament and will face Auburn on Thursday. “I don’t know if we’re playing that well and I know we are painful to watch, but this team is winning games and they don’t quit,” Kennedy said. “I’m excited for them and I know they’re excited.” Terrance Henry, Jarvis Summers and LaDarius White scored 10 points apiece for the Rebels, who managed to preserve a second half lead despite hitting only 16 of 34 (47 percent), from the free-

throw line. Alabama (20-10, 9-7) dropped to the No. 5 seed in the tournament and will face South Carolina on Thursday. Trevor Releford had 12 points, while JaMychal Green had 11 points and 13 rebounds. “This was a big one,” said Henry, who blocked a 3-point shot with 30 seconds left that could have pulled Alabama within four points. “We’re on a three-game winning streak and we’re getting hot. It’s not always the best team but the hot team that can make it in postseason.” Ole Miss shot 21 of 49 from the field (42.9 percent), and struggled at the free-throw line. But the Rebels proved efficient handling the ball, turning the ball over only seven times against consistent full-court pressure from Alabama. Both clubs struggled early, combining for two field goals in the opening nine minutes, as Alabama

built its biggest lead, 11-7. Nick Jacobs gave Alabama its final lead, 15-14, on a short jumper inside with 7:12 left. Ole Miss led 28-17 at halftime on the strength of a 14-2 run in the final seven minutes of the half. Henry highlighted the outburst with seven points and an assist. Alabama managed only 1 of 15 from the field during the decisive Ole Miss outburst. “You’ve got to be able to make shots and you’ve got to be able to take care of the basketball,” Alabama coach Anthony Grant said. “My job is to make sure our guys are prepared to play and I didn’t do a good job getting our team to go.” Alabama pulled within four points on two occasions in the second half, the final time at 43-39 after a 3-pointer by Releford with 10:05 left. Alabama trailed 55-50 after a layup by Green with 2:34 remaining, but followed with a turnover and four

nedy said. “We’re up by seven and after that block, you could sense we were going to survive whatever happened the rest of the way.”

Mississippi State improves postseason hopes with win BY DAVID BRANDT Associated Press

STARKVILLE, Miss. — Arnett Moultrie was throwing down alleyoop dunks. Dee Bost was draining jumpers and dishing out assists. Brian Bryant was slashing through the lane and finishing at the rim. It was a nearly perfect performance that reminded Mississippi State coach Rick Stansbury much more of January than February and the result was a 79-59 victory over Arkansas that has the Bulldogs feeling much better about their postseason chances heading into the Southeastern Conference tournament. “Our guys came out and did what you’re supposed to do on senior night,” Stansbury said. “You always worry about the emotions a little bit — where guys’ minds are — but I thought we played extremely well together. We shared the basketball, took care of the basketball. Their press was no factor.” It’s the second straight win for the Bulldogs, who

were nationally ranked throughout all of January before a five-game swoon in February killed the team’s momentum and clouded their NCAA tournament prospects. Mississippi State (21-10, 8-8) still might need a win or two in the SEC tournament to feel safe about an at-large berth, but the Bulldogs are certainly in a better spot than they were a week ago. Against Arkansas, they could do almost nothing wrong. Moultrie scored 20 points and grabbed 10 rebounds for his 18th double-double of the season. The 6-foot-11 junior had another efficient game in a season full of them, making 7 of 9 shots from the field and 6 of 6 from the free-throw line. He was especially active in the first half, with 14 points and seven rebounds as the Bulldogs built a 3723 halftime lead. Arkansas (18-13, 6-10) has lost seven of nine games. B.J. Young led the Razorbacks with 16 points while Mardracus Wade

added 12 and Rashad Madden scored 10. The dominating victory was further proof that Mississippi State has recovered from its February woes. The Bulldogs ended the five-game losing streak on Wednesday with an overtime victory at South Carolina and followed up by whipping the Razorbacks in their most complete performance in more than a month. Mississippi State had a substantial size advantage in the post and exploited it repeatedly. The two teams went back and forth for the first few minutes, but the Bulldogs pulled ahead thanks to easy looks at the rim for Moultrie, Renardo Sidney and Wendell Lewis. Mississippi State finished the game with 10 dunks, outscored Arkansas 42-22 in the paint and outrebounded the Razorbacks 36-27.

Tennessee tops Vanderbilt for SEC 1st-round bye Associated Press

KNOXVILLE, Tenn. — Cuonzo Martin’s endorsement of his team’s NCAA tournament resume was anything but subtle. Tennessee clinched a bye in the first round of the SEC tournament with a 68-61 win against Vanderbilt on Saturday, ending a regular season that included early losses to

Oakland and Austin Peay and finished with the Vols winning eight of their final nine. The turnaround could end up with Tennessee (18-13, 10-6 SEC) as the No. 2 seed in the SEC tournament if No. 1 Kentucky beats Florida on Sunday. “Are we an NCAA tournament team? Yes,” said Martin, the Vols’ first-year

coach. “Is there work to be done? I don’t know. I’m not on the committee. We’ve got to continue to win ballgames.” Vanderbilt (21-10, 10-6) had locked up a bye in the SEC tournament before Saturday’s game. The Vols, whose RPI is 81st according to, should get a boost from beating the

Commodores, who are 19th in the latest RPI. “Once I took over the program, until I’m in the casket, I don’t know, whatever the case may be ... I said one day we’d be the last team standing,” Martin said. “I meant that when I said it.” Tennessee overcame its 18.8 percent shooting (3 of 16) from 3-point range

by making 12 of 15 free throws down the stretch. Senior Cameron Tatum led the Vols with 18 points and hit five of those free throws in front of an announced crowd of 22,172. “This is something I’ll remember for the rest of my life, my last game in Thompson-Boling Arena,” Tatum said. “The crowd was rocking. We’ve got to

give a shout-out to them. ... The last time we had 22,000 fans was the glory days of C-Lo (former Vol Chris Lofton).” Freshman Jarnell Stokes overcame flu-like symptoms to finish with a double-double of 11 points and 14 rebounds. Tennessee outrebounded VanPlease see VOLS | 9A

Lady Vols advance; Kentucky upset BY BETH RUCKER Associated Press

NASHVILLE, Tenn. — The Tennessee Lady Volunteers have wanted to win in the postseason to honor their coach. Getting revenge on a few teams is just a bonus. No. 13 Tennessee beat No. 25 South Carolina 74-58 on Saturday to advance to its 21st Southeastern Conference championship game. “We were definitely motivated,” Lady Vols senior center Vicki Baugh said. “We were fortunate to play the teams that we wanted to play. We wanted revenge. I think that was our motivation stepping into this tournament. We just wanted to prove that we were the better team.”

The second-seeded Lady Volunteers (23-8) will face fourth-seeded LSU, which upset 10th-ranked Kentucky in the other SEC semifinal. The title game will pit Tennessee coach Pat Summitt against her former player, Lady Tigers coach Nikki Caldwell. South Carolina (23-9) had gotten a rare win in Knoxville earlier in the regular season, but Tennessee’s determined seniors didn’t let it happen again. The seniors also were key in the quarterfinals win against Vanderbilt, another team that logged a win against Tennessee this season. “We weren’t ready to guard or defend (the Gamecocks’) athleticism in Knoxville,” Tennessee associ-

ate head coach Holly Warlick said. “We’ve gone back and we really put in the time with our defensive effort. I think you’re seeing it pay off.” Glory Johnson led Tennessee with 23 points and 10 rebounds, Shekinna Stricklen scored all 16 of her points in the second half and Baugh grabbed 10 rebounds. The Lady Vols didn’t defend particularly well in the regular-season loss to the Gamecocks and fell apart late in the game after holding a seven-point lead with 5 minutes to go. This time, Tennessee put on extra heat during the second half to pull away. Please see SEC | 9A

Saturday’s men’s scores


mostly jump shots. Young shot 7 of 10 from the field, including 2 of 3 from 3-point range. “The game was at their pace, it favored them,” Arkansas coach Mike Anderson said. “Bost did a good job of controlling things.” The Bulldogs shot 51.8 percent from the field (29 of 56) — including 55.6 percent in the second half (15 of 27). Bost scored 16 points, grabbed six rebounds and dished out seven assists while Bryant added 15 points. The two seniors were playing in their final regular-season game at Humphrey Coliseum. “It’s now or never,” Bost said. “It’s my last year and I want to go back to the (NCAA) tournament. I’ll do whatever it takes.” Bryant’s emergence gives the Bulldogs another offensive option heading into the postseason. He’s scored a combined 31 points over the past two games. The 6-3 guard moved into the starting lineup last week after Rodney Hood suffered a knee injury. Hood has returned, but Bryant has stayed in the starting lineup because of his productivity. “I need to step up,” Bryant said. “Rodney’s been hurt and I needed to take the pressure off Moultrie, (Renardo) Sidney and Bost.” Mississippi State earned the No. 6 seed for next week’s conference tournament in New Orleans and Arkansas is the ninth seed.

VOLS: Jenkins kept Vandy in the game CONTINUED FROM 8A

derbilt 40-30. “I think the story of the game is they were more physical,” Vanderbilt coach Kevin Stallings said. “They were just physically tougher than we were at every spot. You can’t win if you get out-physicaled at every spot. Maybe not one spot. Maybe we had one spot that neutralized, but that would’ve been it. Congratulations to them. They played harder and tougher than we did.” John Jenkins, the SEC’s leading scorer, did his best to keep Vanderbilt in the game, scoring eight of his team-high 18 points in the final 11 minutes. The Vols threatened to put the game out of reach on several occasions - three times pushing their lead to nine - but Jenkins consistently scrapped out an answer on an off-shooting night for the junior. Jenkins and Jeffery Taylor, who each shoot better than 45 percent from 3-point range, combined to shoot 4 of 16 from that distance on the night. “I had to work for looks, and the ones I did have were tough,” Jenkins said. “They did a good job.” The duo scored consecutive baskets to pull the Commodores within 56-53, but Tatum made four straight free throws to give Tennessee a late cushion. Trae Golden added 15 and Jeronne Maymon 12 for the Vols.

SEC: ‘It opens up a lot in the transition game, especially where we’re most comfortable’ CONTINUED FROM 8A

South Carolina had trimmed Tennessee’s lead to 32-29 on a pair of free throws by Markeshia Grant 2 minutes into the second half. Stricklen answered with a 3-pointer that sparked an 8-1 run to make it 40-30 with 15:44 to play. The Lady Vols shot 50.9 percent (27 of 53) for the game and limited the Gamecocks to 34.9 percent shooting (22 of 63). They held a 38-30 rebounding advantage and hit 15 of 20 from the free-throw line. “I think finally we figured out that defense and rebound-

ing is the philosophy here,” Baugh said. “That’s Tennessee basketball. It opens up a lot in the transition game, especially where we’re most comfortable.” Grant, who had scored 27 points in the regular-season game, had 13 this time for South Carolina, and Ieasia Walker added another 13 points. “I think a month ago, I mean, we just had a type of mojo about us going into Knoxville,” Grant said. “I think we were just hitting shots, winning the hustle plays, outplaying them. Today I think we did the same, but I think we came up short. We did work hard. I think we did play

They never trailed against the topseeded Wildcats, using a 10-0 run early in the game and stingy defense to take control. LSU held a 22-9 rebounding advantage in the first half that it turned into 10 second-chance points and went 24 for 32 at the free-throw line in the second half.

10A â&#x20AC;˘ Sunday, March 4, 2012 â&#x20AC;˘ Daily Corinthian

Outdoors Legends Hall of Fame inductee talks turkey in Corinth Approximately one hundred sportsmen from the surrounding area filed through the doors of a popular local sporting goods store last Monday evening, not just to take advantage of bargains on outdoor accessories, but to listen to some turkey talk from a gentleman who definitely knows how to speak the language fluently. Two-time World Champion Turkey Calling contest winner and winner of 60 other first place titles throughout the U.S., promoter for â&#x20AC;&#x153;Down-n-Dirty Outdoorsâ&#x20AC;? and Legends Hall of Fame inductee, Eddie Salter of Evergreen, Ala. amused the audience in attendance with some of his past hunting stories and offered tips on hunting turkeys during a semi-

nar which was hosted by Lonnieâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Sporting Goods in Corinth. Eddie David gave a litGreen tle history Outdoors on himself and then proceeded, in a charismatic way, to offer advice on ways to have success in turkey hunting. One of the first topics of conversation dealt with locator calls. He said, â&#x20AC;&#x153;I would never go into the woods without an owl call or a crow call.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;Start using the owl call early in the morning as soon as it gets light enough to see the outline of leaves and pine needles on the ground around

you and use the crow call later on up in the morning around 9 or 10 oâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;clock.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;But donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t just make the usual â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;caw-cawâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; sound with the crow call. Sink your teeth into the tip of it and get real aggressive. If thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a gobbler close by, 9 times out of 10, heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll give away his location.â&#x20AC;? In using the owl call, Eddie also mentioned making one syllable sounds instead of eight syllable ones. Using long drawn out hoots could drown and alter your ability to hear a tom sounding off in the distance. Hunters all too often call too loud and too much when trying to entice a gobbler, according to Eddie. Early in the morning, start out by making soft tree yelps just loud enough that itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s

telling the ole boy, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Hey, Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m over here!â&#x20AC;?, and then maybe make a fly down cackle but not so long and drawn out that it appears the hen flew a half mile away up the bottom. As the season progresses, the frequency of calling should be scaled back because of the effects of all the hunting pressure. He advised to call only sparingly or maybe not even do any calling at all during the latter part of the season. The crowd got a chuckle when he stated by the late season an old gobbler could identify the type and brand name of the call being used. Eddie mentioned several ways to confront a stubborn tom such as calling aggressively, using a gobble call, going si-

lent and then calling only to cut-off a tomâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s gobble, and using multiple types of calling devices on a bird to make it sound like thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s more than one hen in the area looking for a boyfriend. Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s steadfast in his belief that a gobble call is the way to go in harvesting an old boss bird, but was quick to point out caution should be exercised in where one should be used, such as open public hunting land. At the beginning of the seminar, Eddie told the story about taking his first turkey at the age of nine and gave credit to his dad, mom, and granddaddy for helping him get started in the sport. His mom went so far as to buy some tame turkeys so he could study their behavior.

Many in the crowd burst out into laughter when he said his mom started getting concerned about him when he kept following those turkeys around in the yard during his teen years. Next week, youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll have an opportunity to make a similar impact on your young ones or maybe a special youngster in your community. The Mississippi youth turkey season opens on March 8 and runs through the fourteenth. Who knows? With a little help, there just might be another legend in the making!

USDA unveils new wetlands conservation reserve program BY DAVID PITT Associated Press

DES MOINES, Iowa â&#x20AC;&#x201D; The U.S. Department of Agriculture unveiled a program Friday that will offer financial incentives for farmers to enroll up to 1 million new acres of grasslands and wetlands into the conservation reserve program. The government pays farmers to idle about 30 million acres of erodible land. However, contracts on about 6.5 million acres expire Sept. 30. With high corn and soybean prices, there is concern that farmers might put more of the land into production to increase profitability. Soybean prices, for example, surged 9.5 percent

in February to close the month at $13.13 a bushel, the highest theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve traded in five months. The new program focuses on encouraging land to be set aside for wetlands restoration, increasing enrolled land by 200,000 acres. Grasslands enrollment increases by 700,000 acres, including land for duck nesting and upland bird habitat. The program also establishes 100,000 new acres to be set aside for pollinators such as bees, butterflies and hummingbirds. By rolling out new programs and offering incentives, the USDA hopes to maintain the level of erodible farmland in the CRP program at the current

level of about 30 million acres, Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsack told the AP in an interview. The department also expects to see conservation programs come under close scrutiny in the budget process as cuts loom. The cost of the 1 million new acres will come from the USDAâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s existing conservation budget. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s recognition that weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re likely to have fewer conservation programs, but hopefully we have enough flexibility in the programs that remain to be able to meet and tailor conservation programs and projects to the individual needs of the operators and the individual needs of particular water-



sheds,â&#x20AC;? Vilsack said. Setting aside land in CRP is one way to reduce erosion, which can cause farmland runoff and send chemicals into lakes and streams. The USDA estimates CRP keeps more than 600 million pounds of nitrogen and more than 100 million pounds of phosphorous from flowing into waterways. By idling the erodible land and planting it in grasses and other vegetation, the program also creates wildlife habitat. Roger Wolf, director of environmental programs for the Iowa Soybean Association, said farmers must weigh their options when land comes up for renewal this September.

â&#x20AC;&#x153;Farmers will take a look at what kind of return they can get in the marketplace to bring those lands back into production,â&#x20AC;? he said. His family owns about 150 acres in southern Iowa, where steep and rolling land is common, and might take some of it out of CRP to plant, leaving the sloping hills in grasslands. In his situation, the land might bring $140 to $150 an acre in the CRP program but could yield well over $200 an acre if planted in corn or beans. Groups like Pheasants Forever are encouraged by the focus on additional land set aside for wildlife habitat. Many states have seen pheasant numbers

fall in recent years in part due to weather patterns but also due to habitat loss, said group spokesman Dave Nomsen. â&#x20AC;&#x153;How do you in this intensely strong agricultural economy with a 25 percent increase in land values and record high commodity prices find a place for conservation?â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think this announcement is a big step in the right direction.â&#x20AC;? Also Friday, Interior Secretary Ken Salazar planned to recommend about $30 million of the Migratory Bird Conservation Fund be spent in the prairie pothole region, which includes North Dakota, South Dakota, Iowa, Minnesota, and Montana.

Annual pet spending passes $50 billion mark for first time BY SUE MANNING Associated Press

LOS ANGELES — Americans spent $50.96 billion on their pets in 2011. That’s an all-time high and the first time in history more than $50 billion has gone to the dogs, cats, canaries, guppies and the like, the American Pet Products Association said in a report issued Thursday. Food and vet costs ac-

counted for about 65 percent of the spending. But it was a service category — one that includes grooming, boarding, pet hotels, pet-sitting and day care — that grew more than any other, surging 7.9 percent from $3.51 billion in 2010 to $3.79 billion in 2011. APPA President Bob Vetere said 2012 should be another banner year for services, predicting it would grow 8.4 percent to an estimated $4.11 billion

in 2012. Owners are taking care of their pets, said Dr. Jessica Vogelsang, a San Diego veterinarian and author of pawcurious. com. “They are planning ahead. When they go on vacation, they want to make sure their pets are well cared for,” she said. Spending in 2011 was up 5.3 percent from 2010, when it totaled $48.35 billion, Vetere said. He estimated 2012 sales would

total $53 billion. In 2011, people spent $19.85 billion on food, $13.41 billion on vet care,

$11.77 billion on supplies and over-the-counter medicines, $3.79 billion on other services and

$2.14 billion on live animal purchases. In 2010, they spent $18.76 billion on food,

MISSISSIPPI STATE — Brides can save money and bring outdoor elements inside to create an event that reflects an appreciation for nature and highlights native plants and flowers. “Mississippi brides have many local plant materials to choose from, and incorporating plants that can be reused or repurposed extends the life of the decorations beyond the wedding day,” said Lynette McDougald, business manager at The University Florist and plant and soil sciences instructor at Mississippi State University. “There are many plants available for use in bridal floral design.” While most couples cannot include 20-foot trees and hundreds of potted plants in the manner of Prince William and Kate Middleton, careful planning can bring the garden indoors any time

of year. McDougald said brides should work closely with a knowledgeable nurseryman to help select the plants that will be part of the event. “Some plants can be used as centerpieces and wedding favors, given to family members or planted in memory of loved ones,” she said. “Your florist should be able to help you select seasonal blooming material, as florists have a working knowledge of what is available in a potted presentation year round.” In spring, bulb crops can be obtained in potted forms, McDougald said. From March to May, brides can expect some blooming shrubs and branches, such as forsythia and spireas. “Ornamental fruit trees will be making their floral shows. The good news is that throughout these months, something will be blooming,” she said. When collecting flow-

ers or cuttings from a plant, McDougald said to be selective, not simply about the appearance of the cuttings but also about the plant’s shape: prune evenly from all sides. “Never cut from only one side,” she said. “But you can collect when it’s convenient for you. In the mornings, the heat of the day has not built up in the plants, but in the afternoon carbohydrate levels are high, which means the plant has food, so it’s a trade-off.” Using live materials requires planning to avoid damaging the venue by soiling carpets or staining floors with water. “Plants require strong backs to move them in and out. They have to remain level during installation as to not cause messes. Plastic pots or lined wicker baskets that are watertight can be used in display, or these pots can be hidden with burlap or any textile,” McDougald said.

Impatient nation: We want it all now! There it was — a newspaper article on impatient Americans. I couldn’t wait to read it. That’s because I live with a Type-A personality whose middle name should be “Presto.” Hubby G-Man laughs about it himself. He’s the kind who wants what he wants right then and there. No, that’s wrong. He’s the kind who wants what he wants yesterday. And he wants everybody else on his speedy schedule. But this is a very good thing since I’m a laidback, go-with-the-flow procrastinator and nothing would ever get done around our house if GMan didn’t prod. Want me to stand in a line of 50 people at the grocery check-out? Okay. No problem; I’ll watch folks and get ideas for columns. Want me to pack up and mail those sandals and plastic swords Wilkins and Jacks, our adorable twin grandsons, left under the guest room bed? Sure. Next week. I mean, what’s the big rush? Well, according to the newspaper article, most Americans think there is a big rush and we’d

better be about the business of moving smartly. Relating the reBeth sults of a Jacks r e s e a r c h study of Snippets over 1,000 adults, the story describes how an international polling firm called Ipsos found that “the average time Americans can wait in line in a store or office before losing patience is 17 minutes; the average time they can wait on the telephone before losing patience is 9 minutes.” They also found that men get antsier than women in waiting situations (“Men are more than twice as likely to drop out of a slow-moving line!”), and older people are less patient than younger people. And here’s another interesting statistic: “People with college degrees and people with the highest incomes are less patient than those who have less education and lower incomes.” These “three-minutefolks,” as one researcher

called disgruntled shoppers, not only leave in a huff, they’re prone not to return. About half said if they were made to wait longer than they liked, they wouldn’t do business there again. Even worse, 20 percent of those polled admitted they reacted angrily, spouting off and saying things they later regretted. Hey. Chill. Join me in my lackadaisical philosophy. Visit with the fellow behind you in line. File your nails if you have to hold the phone. Meditate. Read a book. Last spring several of us were caught in Mobile traffic while trying to get granddaughter Caroline to her dance recital. “Hey, no problem,” I said to encourage her parents. “The recital doesn’t start for another hour.”

“Yeah, but she has to be there in 20 minutes,” fumed Emily, Caroline’s mom. “Uh huh. And if she slips into line as they prance out onstage, nobody will be the wiser,” said I. Caroline bounced in a mere five minutes late admist all the tutu-clad and their harried mamas still scrambling backstage in no discernible order. Who knew? None of the others even realized we were a tad late. We just joined the confusion, smiling and glad to be there — and so was our little ballerina. Let’s slow down and visit with friends and family. Let’s ditch the rush and, as the Good Book says, speak gently and walk humbly. Life is too short to bicker and fret.

Retired widow seeks new purpose DEAR ABBY: I am a 64-year-old healthy widow with no children. I retired a year ago after a successful 42-year career. I am financially sound. I couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t wait to retire because my job was demanding, and toward the end it had become extremely stressful. About two months into retirement â&#x20AC;&#x201D; and after taking a few trips â&#x20AC;&#x201D; I began feeling worthless and guilty for being nonproductive. I tried a part-time job, but it wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t my thing. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m now considering another part-time job, volunteering or returning to school. I have always wanted to further my education and get a graduate degree, but I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know if Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m too old to meet the demands. I feel like I lost my identity when I stopped

work ethic and experience are valuable assets. If you think a graduate degree would be challenging and would help you in a new career, then by all means, go for it. When people tell me they are thinking of retiring, I always ask, â&#x20AC;&#x153;And what will you be retiring to?â&#x20AC;? because I am convinced that retiring to â&#x20AC;&#x153;nothingâ&#x20AC;? is neither physically nor emotionally healthy for individuals who are used to being active. DEAR ABBY: I bought my aunt, uncle and two teenage cousins gift cards from an online retailer a year and a half ago. I checked with them in advance to see if this might be something theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d use. Six months ago, I noticed in my order history that only one of the cards had been redeemed. I hate

working. I know it had to end one day, but I still have a lot of Abigail e n e r g y Van Buren and want to engage Dear Abby in some activity that will revive my selfworth. At this point, I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know what that will be. Your thoughts and guidance would be greatly appreciated. â&#x20AC;&#x201D; SEARCHING FOR â&#x20AC;&#x153;MEâ&#x20AC;?

Today, for various reasons -- not all of them financial -- many seniors choose to remain in the business world. Their

to see the money go to waste. Should I call my relatives? If I do, what do I say? Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s possible they just havenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t gotten around to using the cards. Should I reprint the cards and send them with a reminder note? (Maybe the cards were lost?) Should I send my relatives a check and use the cards myself? Chalk it up to a loss? That one kills me! I suppose if I hadnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t seen the order history, I would never have known whether the cards had been used. What do you think I should do? â&#x20AC;&#x201D; CONFLICTED IN CONNECTICUT DEAR CONFLICTED: Use the direct approach. Contact your relatives and tell them that while reviewing your account history, you noticed that three of the four gift

cards you sent have not been used. Ask if they would like to have them printed out again, if by chance they were lost â&#x20AC;&#x201D; or if they would prefer you send them a check for the value of the cards. To contact them isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t rude, and it shouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be awkward. In fact, it may be appreciated. DEAR ABBY: My wife says I am always wrong. Is she right? â&#x20AC;&#x201D; TONGUE IN MY CHEEK DEAR CHEEK: Not this time. Even a stopped clock is right twice a day. (Dear Abby is written by Abigail Van Buren, also known as Jeanne Phillips, and was founded by her mother, Pauline Phillips. Write Dear Abby at or P.O. Box 69440, Los Angeles, CA 90069.)

Monkees’ Jones a TV heartthrob Great party movies BY JOHN ROGERS Associated Press

LOS ANGELES — Before there was MTV, before “American Idol” made overnight stars of people you never heard of, there was “The Monkees,” a band fronted by a diminutive singer named Davy Jones who was so boyishly good looking that teenage girls swooned the first time they ever saw him. That was at the end of the summer of 1966, when Jones and his three Monkee cohorts, Michael Nesmith, Peter Tork and Micky Dolenz, arrived on weekly television, portraying a carbon copy of another band called the Beatles. Each Monday night for the next two years, people would tune into NBC to see the comical trials and tribulations of four young musicians who tooled around in a tricked-out car called the Monkeemobile. When they weren’t introducing two or three new songs per show, they would be busy rescuing damsels in distress or being chased by bumbling outlaws in a comical display of slapstick that has sometimes been compared to the work of the Marx Brothers. Although all four members handled the lead vocals during their music videos, it was Jones, the onetime child star of the British musical stage, who quickly became the group’s heartthrob. With his boyish good looks and endearing British accent augmented by a strong, Broadway-trained singing voice, it was a role he would play for the rest of his life. Jones died Wednesday of a heart attack near his home in Indiantown, Fla.,

just months after he, Tork and Dolenz had completed a tour marking The Monkees’ 45th anniversary. He was 66. The Monkees had been created to cash in on the Beatles’ popularity, and although they never came close to achieving the critical stature of their counterparts, they did carve out a permanent niche in music as what Rolling Stone’s Encyclopedia of Rock ’n’ Roll has called “the first and perhaps the best of the ’60s and ’70s prefabricated pop groups.” Their songs were melodic, catchy, and many have endured over the years. The first two they released, “Last Train to Clarksville” and “I’m a Believer,” became No. 1 hits. So did “Daydream Believer,” on which Jones sang the lead and which Dolenz told The Associated Press four years ago remains the Monkees’ most requested song at concerts. “Of the four actors they hired, Davy Jones was by far the most accomplished as a singer and as a performer. He was really the perfect choice,” said Rich Podolsky, author of a biography of Don Kirshner, who was “The Monkees” TV show’s musical director. Born in Manchester, England, on Dec. 30, 1945, Jones had been a child star in his native country, appearing on television and stage, including a heralded role as “The Artful Dodger” in a London production of the play “Oliver.” When the show came to Broadway, he earned a Tony nomination at age 16 for the role, a success that brought him to the attention of Columbia

Pictures/Screen Gems Television, which created “The Monkees.” Hundreds of musicianactors turned out for the auditions, but the young men who became the Monkees had no idea what ultimately awaited them. When they put him together with Tork, Dolenz and Nesmith, the chemistry was obvious. “That’s it,” he recalled everyone around him saying: “Magic.” At 5-feet-3 inches, he was by far the shortest member of the group — a fact often made light of on the show. But he also was its dreamboat, mirroring Paul McCartney’s role in the Beatles. And as the only Briton among the four, Jones was in some ways the Monkees’ direct connection to the Beatlemania still strong in the U.S. when the TV show made its debut. In August 1966, the Beatles performed in San Francisco, playing their last live set for a paying audience. The same month, the Monkees released their first album, introducing the group to the world. The show would debut the following month. It was a shrewd case of cross-platform promotion. As David Bianculli noted in his “Dictionary of Teleliteracy,” “The show’s self-contained music videos, clear forerunners of MTV, propelled the group’s first seven singles to enviable positions of the pop charts: three number ones, two number twos, two number threes.” The Monkees would soon come under fire from music critics, however, when it was learned that session musicians

Horoscopes ARIES (March 21-April 19). Any daily activity can be a path to peace, as long as you are mindful as you do it. Your attention to experiences will involve all of your senses as you completely join with the moments of your life. TAURUS (April 20-May 20). You will have moments in which you rise above the chatter of your mind and act without thinking. You’ll be at one with your nature and with the nature of the world, and it feels good to be back in the flow. GEMINI (May 21-June 21). You can’t “try” to be more spontaneous any more than you can “seriously” work on your sense of humor. You’ll be aware of similarly futile efforts, and you’ll give them up. CANCER (June 22-July 22). People have a right to change their minds, but there’s a wrong way to do this and a right way. You could be dealing with some flaky people today -- or maybe it’s just that no one taught them the right way. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). Your breath anchors you to life. Being aware of your breathing -- the depth of it, when you hold your breath, what makes you exhale -- will make you aware of your life VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). Your understanding will broaden, and suddenly you may question certain things you took for granted -- for instance, your freedom. How free are you really, and how could you be freer? LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). It will be lucky for you to address any concerns you have about your self-image or body. You’re likely to either nip a problem in the bud or make easy, inexpensive improvements.

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). Just because you make something doesn’t mean people will buy it. And the same goes for your opinions. However, today the odds are in your favor. Play them and cash in. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). You don’t require that your loved ones stand by your side at all times, but you like to know they would if you wanted them to. You might create a false alarm situation just to make sure. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). You’ll be in “watch and learn” mode, preferring to hang back and watch how people interact, solve problems and go about their daily business. You’ll absorb a week’s worth of experience in one day. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). You attract highly compatible individuals, people who harmonize with you in many ways and on multiple levels. The inspiration will coax your soul into singing its sweet song. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). You are an expression of divine energy even though you sometimes feel like a complete mess. Really, you need to stop being so hard on yourself. Focus on what’s going right. TODAY’S BIRTHDAY (March 4). There will be many marvelous opportunities to understand your social needs and tendencies. The mastery of interpersonal dynamics will augment your fortunes. Keep circulating even when you’re not sure you want to make the effort. Finances perk up in April. New relationships enter the scene in June. Your work also changes in June. Aries and Leo people adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 19, 2, 22, 1 and 16.


— and not the group’s members — had played the instruments on their recordings. They were derided as the “Prefab Four,” an insulting comparison to the Beatles’ nickname, the “Fab Four.” In reality, Jones could play the drums and guitar. Although Dolenz, the group’s drummer on the show, only learned to play that instrument after he joined the Monkees, he also could play guitar. Nesmith played guitar and wrote numerous songs, both for the Monkees and others. Tork, who played bass and keyboards on the TV show, was a multiinstrumentalist. The group eventually prevailed over the show’s producers, including Kirchner, and began to play their own instruments. Regardless, they were supported by enviable talent. Carole King and Gerry Goffin wrote “Pleasant Valley Sunday,” and Neil Diamond penned “I’m a Believer.” Musicians who played on their records included Billy Preston, who later played with the Beatles, Glen Campbell, Leon Russell and Ry Cooder. If the critics didn’t initially like them, the group’s members had admirers among their fellow musicians. Although the Monkees received a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame in 1989, one honor that has eluded the group was induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. For years, supporters have circulated petitions demanding that the group be included.

BY CHRISTY LEMIRE Associated Press

LOS ANGELES — “Project X” follows one wild night as a group of high school outcasts throw an epic bash, one they hope will make them popular. Watching other people getting a little out of hand on screen makes you wish you could be there, too — you can enjoy yourself vicariously without suffering through a hangover the next day. Here’s a look at four great movie parties. You don’t even have to RSVP — just come as you are: ■ “Animal House” (1978): It is, of course, the gold standard. When I was in school, every fraternity wanted to reach such heights of hedonism (or depths, depending on your perspective). But they could never match the men of Delta Tau Chi. They are, as you well know, the worst house at Faber College. So just when they’re on the verge of being kicked off campus for their horrendous grades and various other offenses, they do the only thing they can do: throw a toga party. Yes, “Shout” is massively overplayed by now — you hear it at every bar mitzvah and accounting firm holiday party — but seeing Otis Day and the Knights perform it in this gleefully debauched setting was perfect. ■ “Sixteen Candles” (1984): The quintessential John Hughes movie bash — the kind of party that only happens in the movies, where high school kids from every level of the social hierarchy get together to trash some ridiculous mansion. (“Project X” similarly aims for this kind of egalitarian spirit.) This is a party where anything can

and does happen, where a geek (Anthony Michael Hall) can befriend the studliest guy in school and wind up taking the prom queen home. Even the politically incorrect Long Duk Dong gets lucky with his new-style American girlfriend. ■ “Bachelor Party” (1984): A grossly underappreciated early Tom Hanks film and a neat little time capsule. Tawny Kitaen! Adrian Zmed! All that big hair! Good times. “Bachelor Party” is inappropriate in the ways “Project X” only aspires to be — or at least it seemed that way at the time. Pimps and prostitutes, nuns and cross-dressers, strippers with sex toys, hot dogs that aren’t really hot dogs — they all collide over the course of this delightfully weird film. ■ “Revenge of the Nerds” (1984): This was a good year for these kinds of movies, apparently; perhaps it was the ostentatious excess of the era that made wild bashes like these make sense. They were a reflection of who we were, or at least who we wanted to be — even if we were nerds. The misfits who come together to form a makeshift fraternity try hard to throw a party that will impress the leaders of the traditionally black Lambda Lambda Lambda, the only national group that will consider giving them a charter. Things aren’t going so well at first — a shrill violin performance, an accordion sing-along — but when Booger busts out the wonderjoints, the nerds and the equally awkward Omega Mus have no trouble throwing down. An ’80s classic.
